Description of Organization:

NYU’s Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service prepares public service leaders to translate ideas into actions that have an effective and lasting impact on the public good. Our faculty’s research changes the way people frame, understand, and act on
important public issues.  Students are provided with critical skills, access to all that New York City has to offer, and a deep understanding of context surrounding public service challenges—which they use to improve cities and communities across the globe.  Since 1938, NYU Wagner has been educating the world’s future public service leaders. We offer a Master of Public Administration in Public & Nonprofit Management & Policy, Master of Public Administration in Health Policy & Management, Master of Urban Planning, Master of Health Administration, Master of Science in Public Policy, Executive Master of Public
Administration, and PhD in Public Administration. 

Grant(s) Awarded

In 2024, a Women in Buddhism grant of $15,000 was awarded to support The Women in Buddhism Fellowship program at NYU. This is a 10-week co-curricular program for ten NYU undergraduate women who wish to enhance their classroom learning with practical, evidence-based mindfulness practice and Buddhist education. The teachings and instructor of the Fellowship will be Buddhist women. The goal is moving female Buddhist thought and scholarship from margins to center and celebrating Buddhist women’s unique contributions and insights to the field.
